Falcons, safety William Moore agree to 5-year deal

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with safety William Moore on a 5-year contract.

Moore was a Pro Bowl alternate with Atlanta last season, when he had four interceptions and 105 tackles. He was 1 of the top names on the team's list of unrestricted free agents.

Moore, a second-round draft pick from Missouri in 2009, has made 38 starts in four seasons with the Falcons. He was limited by a hamstring injury to 12 games last season. He set a career high with five interceptions in 2010.

The Falcons released running back Michael Turner, defensive end John Abraham and cornerback Dunta Robinson last week. General manager Thomas Dimitroff said his priority is to keep the team's free agents, including Moore.
